Cannot configue yola mail to Thunderbird, Outlook express or Zimbra ?

I've tried repeatedly to set up an external mail client for my Yola mail address, but on Thunderbird, Outlook Express and Zimbra I receive error messages saying that the server cannot be verified. I've followed the set-up guides to the letter, but the only way I can get any access with Thunderbird is to set it up with no security and an unprotected password (which obviously I'm not happy about).

Where am I going wrong?

In order to fetch/send e-mails to/from your computer/handheld , You must get POP/SMTP or IMAP support from the provider.(gmail,aol and hotmail supports, yahoo not)

idk whether Yola offer POP access, if Yes, yola will let you know incoming/outgoin server details.

If yola has no POP support, Moving to Google apps is a good idea.

Hello mamainventions

The settings we display for your email program are out-of-date and we're in the process of fixing them. In the meantime, please use the following settings:

SMTP Server:
POP3 Server:
IMAP Server:

Remember to change "" to your specific domain name.

You can find further information on setting up email with email programs on this link: Publishing, Domains and Email. Scroll down to the Email section.

Please let me know if you have any further trouble with this.
